Senate Committee hears testimony on The Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act of 2009

10/16/09 Southern Voice / Gay Marriage Watch:

The Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee heard testimony on the Domestic Partnership Benefits & Obligations Act, which would make the same-sex partners of federal employees eligible for the same benefits as the spouses of straight workers.
10/16/09 LGBT POV:
As Washington state is fighting to retain it’s Domestic Partnership law - the subject of a referendum on Nov. 3 – Congressmember Tammy Baldwin today testified how she and her partner of 13 years are deprived of the same federal benefits as her colleagues enjoy as married couples. Baldwin (WI-02) testified in front of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on behalf of the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act, H.R. 2517.
